I decided to go wildfowling tonight and parked up on the lane side before a 1 kilometre walk to the seawall and the foreshore. I got my gear on and let my dog out, Raff a HWV, he had a bit of a sniff around and a pee as normal before stopping and looking intently upwind then taking in deep lungfuls of air in with a snorting sound. Normally this is a sign he has scented deer, there was strong wind blowing from the direction of the seawall and there was nothing to be seen in the adjacent field or the next.
Anyways I tramp off down a drain side to the seawall, and on reaching the vantage point of the seawall I see them, half a dozen Roe couched down in the lea of the only hedge around, and directly upwind of where I had parked the car, and I would say approx 1 kilometre away from the car. No guarantees that my Viz had scented those deer of course but all the signs were that he was indicating deer.
Did not see a duck at flight time !
